Most people I am close with know that these are my words for 2017. And some days it's easy and some days it is the hardest. Really trying to BE STILL in my life with God, family, friends & careers. Allowing things to happen in their own time, letting go and trusting in the Lord.
To "be still" will hopefully give me some peace and time to slow down to be with God and enjoy each and every moment with my family instead of always hustling to the next thing on the calendar or to do list.
I have tried to do my best to be still but if you see me stressing just remind me of those two little words. I need ALL the help I can get! 😊🙏❤

Watching the rain from inside one of my favorite coffee shops, lavender latte, avocado toast, morning mini-date with my guy... this might be the perfect way to start a day.

Tell all the Truth but tell it slant—
Success in Circuit lies
Too bright for our infirm Delight
The Truth’s superb surprise
As Lightning to the Children eased
With explanation kind
The Truth must dazzle gradually
Or every man be blind —
-Emily Dickinson, #1129

The words weren't coming. Face buried in the carpet, curled up in the child's pose and the first prayer whispered since summertime. Tentatively at first, then hectic and messy and real. God hears the whispered prayers, the ones that don't make sense, the ones that are words you don't realize you're saying until you've said them. I haven't prayed aloud since summertime. Face was buried in the carpet. The words are back.

Woohoo!! We love it too! <3 // 'That feeling you get when you're walking through Sam's Club and stumble across a book you're published in! #incourage #cravingconnection #Writinglife'

I don't know about you, but I needed this afternoon's cup of coffee! ☕ If you haven't read today's post, please do. (Link in my bio 😉) Since I posted it, I've had the privilege of hearing from many other women who have silent struggles. Let the golden truths of God's Word mend your broken pieces! 💔💓📖

Loving and being there for your Ohana and Friends is What Jesus Did..So Should We!🙋💋 #love #standbythem #incourage #pray #liftthemup

We love this reminder from @incourage. How can you be kind to someone today?
.
Plus we have a whole book of fun scripture cards like this! 📷:@incourage

Here is a little bit of my heart. ❤ I am sharing with prayers that the victory God gave me over my silent struggle will encourage you! Please feel free to share with others you think it will help. 😊 Just click the link in my bio!

Practising yoga or meditation will help relax the body, mind, and soul.
You can sign for a trial yoga class, many community centers will offer the 1st class for free.
You also can try meditating at home by sitting in a comfortable position, closing your eyes, clearing your mind, and thinking about one specific but stress-free thing for 10-30 minutes.
Message me if you would like to book a complimentary fitness consultation.

Sometimes, I wake up and feel like an old bag completely entitled to my moodiness and self righteousness...I'm miserable, I'm quite sure I was dropped in the wrong economic bracket, and I'm feeling jaded because when I was 11 my nose was broken and forever remains crooked 😳
Yes, I will get over myself; yes, I will count my blessings; yes, I will bless the people...I may even put on makeup; but for the next half hour I'm sulking under my covers 🙎🏻
Joy may not be coming naturally today, but I choose to give myself some grace and admit I'm only human. I'll turn to God who is our true source of joy and ask for His mercy which is new every morning ❤#fulldisclosure

When on a Monday morning I don't necessarily want to consider the trial all joy- resolution and peace are more on my breakfast menu. When I am doubting the fire is doing any real refining at all, and I am just burning alive for some sick exercise in futility. When I'm telling God, I don't see the gold and I'm starting to wonder if there's any in me to be cultivated. "I don't see the gold...." And He says, "Really? There at the end of your pen, your honest scribbles on pages? You don't see it- because I Am."

Peter stepped out onto the sea and walked. He looked away and sank.
Peter denied Jesus in a hurl of angry words, fled and hid. Just days later he leapt from a boat because he couldn't get to Jesus fast enough, he couldn't stand to be separated. A handful of years later Peter's own humble pen wrote: “So be truly glad. There is wonderful joy ahead, even though you must endure many trials for a little while. These trials will show that your faith is genuine. It is being tested as fire tests and purifies gold—though your faith is far more precious than mere gold. So when your faith remains strong through many trials, it will bring you much praise and glory and honor on the day when Jesus Christ is revealed to the whole world.”
‭‭1 Peter‬ ‭1:6-7‬ ‭NLT‬‬

When on a Monday morning the fire hurts and the world outside bites cold, the trials and tested faith of a man much like myself shine like gold off the page.

May He grant you all this and MORE this week.
